Sinead Keane

Yoga Teacher and Physio

I thoroughly enjoyed the Restore and Unwind CPD training I completed recently with Carol Murphy, Green Lotus Yoga. The manual written by Carol is a fantastic resource to have and very very well laid out and thorough. Carol is extremely knowledgeable and experienced in her teaching and I would highly recommend any of her courses to anyone who is considering a yoga teacher training, or to qualified teachers who wish to develop their training and knowledge base. I hope to continue training with Carol and I am really looking forward to the return of her studio yoga classes for teachers

‘I have thought for years I would never fully understand the mechanics of the body as it seemed to me like an endless complicated web but we are half way through the course and the body now represents itself as a fascinating machine that seems to unravel itself from month to month.
